A spokesman for the ISAF international military force tells CNN about 20 or so Afghan soldiers who cleared the roof of Kabul's Intercontinential hotel are going from room to room of the hotel. “That could take hours,” said the spokesman Maj. Tim James.
Maj. James said there are a small number of ISAF “mentors” working with the Afghan soldiers at the hotel.
There are no reports of any injuries or deaths among the Afghan or ISAF troops, James said.
He said three gunmen on the roof were killed; one other was killed at the beginning of the attack.
